    The leader of moderate Syrian opposition bloc Syria’s Tomorrow, Ahmad Jarba, will visit Moscow to discuss Syrian settlement with Russian officials, member of the bloc's General Secretariat Kassem el-Khatib told Sputnik on Friday.

    CAIRO (Sputnik) — Jarba announced the formation of the Syria's Tomorrow movement in Cairo in March on a platform of decentralized rule in Syria. He previously headed the Syrian National Coalition opposition group. Syria’s Tomorrow emerged in March in a new bid to unite liberal opposition forces under one umbrella organization.

    "Ahmad Jarba, head of the Syria’s Tomorrow, will visit the Russian capital in the end of this month under the official invitation to meet Russian officials," el-Khatib said.

    He added that the upcoming meeting was of utmost importance as Russia "controls Syrian dossier on the international arena."

    El-Khatib specified that Jarba and the Russian counterpart would discuss the political settlement in Syria and the necessity to protect the civilians from the horrors of war.
