    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russia's campaign against terrorist groups in Syria showed the international community what serious threat the crisis in the Arab country poses to the world's security, Khaled Issa, Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party representative to France, told Sputnik.

    "Russian intervention has had a positive role, it showed how dangerous the Syrian crisis is, and the need for international consensus in order to solve it," Issa said. "The Syrian problem has become a threat to the security and stability of the Middle East and even with repercussions that threaten the world."

    Issa noted that Russia could not eradicate terrorism completely in Syria by itself, especially given it is not the only player on the Syrian arena, but international efforts were required.

    Friday, September 30, marks a one-year anniversary of Russia's air strikes against terrorist groups in Syria.
