Pakistan's army chief Thursday vowed to maintain peace and security in the region after a meeting of top military commanders.

Chief of the army staff General Ashfaq Kayani made the remarks at the 113th Corps Commanders' conference held at the General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi, some 30 km south from the capital Islamabad, according to an official statement.

Kayani said that the Pakistani army stood for peace and security and hoped that peace and stability in the region would be maintained, it said.

The commanders' meeting was the first since last week's militant attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai.

A war of words erupted when India pointed the finger at Pakistan, and demanded the extradition of 20 suspects it says are linked to the attacks.

Earlier Thursday, Kayani met with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who flew into Islamabad from New Delhi Thursday in a bid to defuse tensions between the two South Asian neighbors.
