Syrian opposition chief Ahmad Jarba is to visit Moscow on Tuesday at the invitation of Russian authorities, a top aide told AFP on the sidelines of peace talks in Geneva.Russia was already a key ally of the Damascus regime long before Syria's civil war broke out in 2011, enjoying strong trade ties and having a key Mediterranean naval base in the country.With the opposition backed strongly by the United States, an agreement between Washington and Moscow last year paved the way for the Geneva peace talks which mark the first time Syria's two sides have sat down since the war erupted.
