US Secretary of State John Kerry will visit Brussels Friday to offer Washington's support and issue condolences after attacks that left 31 dead, a State Department spokesman said Wednesday.

"Secretary Kerry will travel to Brussels, Belgium, on Friday to formally express the condolences of the United States for the loss of life in yesterday's terrorist attacks," spokesman John Kirby said in a statement.

Kerry will "reiterate the strong support of the United States for Belgian efforts to both investigate these attacks and continue contributing to international efforts to counter violent extremism," he said.

Washington's top diplomat is currently in Moscow where he will meet President Vladimir Putin on Thursday as part of a two-day trip to discuss the Syrian conflict and the ongoing peace talks, as the regime and rebel forces observe a shaky ceasefire.
