Juncker: EU freedom of movement "will not be changed"
Jean-Claude Juncker has said freedom of movement within the EU was "a basic principle" of European cooperation and "will not be changed".
Mr Juncker will take over as president of the European Commission in November. However he did say that there were abuses of the system and rules could be tightened to prevent these.
He agreed that the EU "should not put its nose in everything" and should leave some decision-making to the national governments of member states.
