France and the Italian government took on Sunday to quickly act on the approval of asylum-seekers.
Italy will "fight for the next few months" for the right to asylum in Europe, Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said on Sunday.
"Europe must stop worrying and must start acting. We must finally decide (...) that we have a European immigration policy with the right to asylum in Europe, "he said in an interview for the Corriere della Sera newspaper.
Refugees who "flee before war, persecution, abuse and violence must be accepted (...), they must be treated with respect, they must be provided with accommodation and care," French Prime Minister Manuel Valls added.
On the "Balkan route", thousands of refugees - mainly from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan - continue their troublesome journey to the Schengen area by foot, bus or train.
Hundreds of them continued to cross the Serbian-Hungarian border on Sunday, although Hungary - which recorded 50.000 arrivals in August - completed setting up a barbed wire fence at the 175 km limit.
