imageWASHINGTON: US Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Geneva Sunday in a show of support for the ceasefire between the Syrian government and rebel forces, US officials said Saturday.

Kerry will meet with the foreign ministers of Jordan and Saudi Arabia and UN envoy Staffan de Mistura, the State Department said in a statement.

The trip comes with a US- and Russian-backed ceasefire under threat as Syrian government aircraft continue to attack the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.

A new round of UN-backed Syria peace talks is set to start in Genea on May 10.
