SOCHI, September 23 (Itar-Tass) - The problem of “terrorism spilling over” from troubled countries, including from Syria, is a real threat for states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), Russian President Vladimir Putin told its session on Monday.
The group could not turn a blind eye to such a serious problem as affairs in Syria, Putin said, noting that armed groups operating on the territory of that state had not emerged from nowhere and would not evaporate. “The problem of terrorism spilling from one country into some other is quite real and may directly affect interests of any of our countries,” he added.
The Russian president cited the terrorist act in Kenya, attributed to gunmen from a different country, as an example.
Behind the dramatic developments in Syria and Kenya “we have stopped paying attention to other events no less terrible,” the president said. “Another awful terrorist act was committed in Iraq yesterday. Dozens or even hundreds of people are killed there on a daily basis. The situation in other countries of the region also raises big concerns,” Putin said.
CSTO leaders “have things to discuss” at the summit and they needed to think how to “stop the threats that are emerging in the world and directly affect us”.
Putin said the CSTO leaders would issue a declaration on developments in Syria.
