Europe is approaching the limit of its ability to take new refugee waves, says EU president Donald Tusk.

– Europe’s practical ability to take new waves of refugees, and not to forget irregular economic migrants, is close to its critical point, said Tusk at a press conference on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hangzhou in China on Sunday.

EU president urges world community to assume its share of the burden.
