Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif on Thursday said the U.S. troop surge in Afghanistan will not make any difference and that a political solution should be sought. He roams free in Pakistan and is aggressively pursuing politics in the country.

The statement further added that National Security Advisor Mohammad Haneef Atmar met with H.E. Minister Asif on 21st September in UNHQ in NY.
