VIENNA - Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev asked the international community to lend its support for ending the Armenian invasion of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Armenia insists on not leaving Nagorno-Karabakh, internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, even after United Nations Security Council made a decision stipulating the end of the invasion, Aliyev said in a joint press conference with Austrian President Heinz Fischer in Vienna during his official visit to the country.

Fischer said the cooperation between the two countries would continue not only on economic basis, but also on all international platforms, UN in particular.

Commenting on Syria issue, Fischer said that Austria favored a "political resolution" for the Syrian conflict, adding that a resolution could become feasible if Russia and the United States reached an agreement.

A military intervention, like in Iraq, would not be acceptable, Fischer said.

Meanwhile, Aliyev called the twin car bombings in Hatay province near Turkish-Syrian border as "barbaric", and said international cooperation was necessary to fight against such acts of terrorism.
