Wouldn't "Bu konu çok ciddi" also be acceptable?

"konu" is more like "topic" and doesn't have the same graveness as "issue."

I see. I would say that the meaning of the word "issue", on a scale, would lie somewhere between those of topic and problem.

I would say that is more like "quite" or "really" :)

Firstly, sorry for replying this late. Secondly, "very" can mean "oldukça" too, trust me I'm Turkish.
