Davos, January 21 (RHC)-- French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has warned that the European Union faces several dangers that could lead to the bloc’s collapse in the near future.
Speaking on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos on Thursday, Valls said he attended the gathering to speak about "all the dangers" which the bloc is facing. Those dangers, he said, "could lead to a fracturing of the European project, and not in a few years or decades, but in the next few months."
Valls mentioned the recent refugee inflow into the EU countries as one of the dangers that could cause the collapse of the bloc.
Europe has been facing an unprecedented inflow of refugees fleeing wars and violence in Africa and the Middle East, particularly Syria. More than one million refugees entered Europe in 2015, according to the United Nations refugee agency, UNHCR.
Valls cited terrorism and a possible British exit from the bloc as other dangers threatening the EU. He said that if Britain chooses to leave the EU, it "would undoubtedly be a bad thing, a very bad thing."
