3. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Tusk, European Council President:
"Those who criticise us should rather think how to increase their assistance, because what Europe provides is already massive. In all the above mentioned three dimensions (referring to making the international community increase assistance for solving refugees' needs, encouraging other financial institutions and donors to raise their assistance, and promoting the establishment of resetllement schemes for refugees), we need the leadership of G7. And honestly speaking, if they do not take the lead in managing this crisis, nobody else will. I will appeal to G7 leaders to take up this challenge."

"I can assure you that, in fact, when it comes to the EU, we are ready to continue with our sanctions (on Russia), and I'm quite sure that, in fact, we don't need, you know, a special discussion among leaders. For example, in June, during our European Council meeting, I'm quite sure that we will decide about sanctions in (the) next two or three weeks, without huge discussion."

"We have to choose. If we prefer free movement, if we prefer the whole values of the EU, we have to accept also some negative results. It's not only the UK experience, this is the idea of Europe, this readiness to respect values, even some results of this fact, it can be also be negative. But, as I mentioned one minute ago, we have to respect every decision in the UK, and we are ready to do it."
10. SOUNDBITE (English) Jean-Claude Juncker, European Commission President:
"Yes, the general atmosphere of our talks would be better if Britain is staying in the European Union. I'm reading in British papers that (Former London mayor and prominent campaigner for Britain to leave the EU) Boris Johnson spent part of his life in Brussels. It's time for him to come back to Brussels in order to check in Brussels if everything he's telling the British people is in line with reality, I don't think so. So he would be welcomed in Brussels at any time."
Top European Union officials on Thursday urged the Group of Seven major economies to show solidarity in helping European nations cope with the influx of thousands of migrants and refugees.
European Council President Donald Tusk told reporters in Ise Shima that G7 leaders, who are gathering in Japan for their annual summit, had to take the lead in "managing" the crisis.
Hundreds of thousands of people, many from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, have tried to seek asylum in wealthier European countries after fleeing war and poverty.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and fellow leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and the United States are holding a two-day summit in Japan's coastal region of Ise-Shima focused on boosting trade and economic growth, as well as tackling other global issues.
Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker are both representing Europe at the G7 summit.
Both leaders made reference to the UK's upcoming referendum on whether it should remain in or leave the European Union.
Tusk also said the EU was ready to continue with sanctions against Russia over its role in the Ukraine conflict.
