New Delhi: The entire neighbourhood, minus one, has been a fairly good story for regional cooperation, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said on Friday. "I would say the entire neighbourhood, minus one, had actually been a fairly good story of regional cooperation," Jaishankar said in reference to Pakistan.

Responding to a question at a session of the World Economic Forum here, Jaishankar also said that the Kashmir issue did come up in meetings with the United States.

Tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbours have spiked since India abrogated Article 370 of the Constitution in August to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. India's decision evoked strong reactions from Pakistan, which downgraded diplomatic ties and expelled the Indian ambassador.

Pakistan has been trying to internationalise the Kashmir issue, but New Delhi has asserted the abrogation of Article 370 was its "internal matter".

India has also launched a diplomatic outreach to apprise major countries about its decisions related to the former state.

The US has earlier said that while Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made his position clear on Kashmir, Washington wants New Delhi to quickly ease restrictions in the state.
