The number of migrants at the EU's frontiers reached a record high of 107,500 in July, Frontex, the EU external border protection agency said Tuesday.

BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — The figure is record-breaking since it exceeds 100,000 per month for the first time since Frontex started keeping records on the situation in 2008.

"This is an emergency situation for Europe that requires all EU member states to step in to support the national authorities who are taking on a massive number of migrants at its borders," Frontex Executive Director Fabrice Leggeri was quoted as saying in a statement.

Majority of the undocumented migrants entering the European Union came from Syria and Afghanistan, Frontex claimed, adding that most of them initially entered Greece from Turkey.

The European Union is currently facing an enormous influx of refugees, crossing the Mediterranean Sea to escape economic hardship and warfare at home.
