Interior ministers of member countries of European Union (EU) decide whether to accept the Monday morning distribution of 0,000 asylum seekers who landed on the shores of the continent this year, a debate that will expose the tensions that sparked the current refugee crisis.

Formally the 28 member countries approve the commitment agreed at the summit last July to distribute among them 32,256 asylum seekers, and reiterate their willingness to revise that figure in December in order to reach the total of 40,000 people requested by Brussels.
