Europe without solution to deal with growing wave of migrants

Europe remains unanswered for the Crescent of refugees and migrants trying to enter every day in the old continent in search of asylum or a better life.

There are thousands of people in countries like Macedonia, Serbia, Montenegro, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina or Kosovo, hoping to continue the trip.

The Austria received in the first half of 2015, about 28,300 asylum applications, more than the total number of requests for 2014.

A situation denounced by Amnesty International to the United Nations.

With the predictable arrivals of more people, coming from Macedonia, the situation tends to get worse.

The Vienna Government expects solutions.

"We are facing a situation where migrants come from a European Union country to Macedonia, which has no capacity to deal with this alone. Are overloaded with the situation. We need a European response urgently and cannot be: the refugees coming from Greece, most without register, to then be forwarded for Macedonia, "said Austrian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sebastian Kurz.

According to the UNHCR, about three thousand people pass through Macedonia, every day, into the European Union.
