The European Commission's president is to deliver his annual state of the union address and will propose a new Africa-Europe alliance, BBC reports.

Jean-Claude Juncker will say it is time for the EU to take its place at the top table of global powers.

He is also expected to predict the UK will have better relations with the EU than any other country after Brexit.
