"The Russian foreign minister invited me to Moscow. I hope to respond to his invitation [and to visit Russia] soon", Salame said, adding that he had received the invitation during a meeting with Lavrov on the margins of the Munich Security Conference.
Commenting on the situation of the son of late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Hannibal, who currently is a Lebanese prison, the envoy said the UN mission in Libya was making every effort in terms of humanitarian assistance.
"As for the humanitarian aspect, we are doing everything in our power. Two weeks ago we asked the sanctions committee of the UN Security Council to allow Gaddafi's daughter to visit her ill mother in Cairo, the humanitarian aspect is important to us, but we do not interfere in the issues related to Lebanese or Libyan justice", Salame pointed out.

Last week, Hannibal Gaddafi told Sputnik in an interview — conducted through Gaddafi's representative, Reem El Debri — that he was grateful to Russia for its efforts aimed at securing his release.
"We are counting on Russia's big role as a great state in such cases of arbitrariness. I am grateful [to Russia] for the efforts being taken for my release", Hannibal Gaddafi said.
The chairman of the Tobruk-based Libyan House of Representatives, Aguila Saleh, also told Sputnik in late January that Lebanon was acting unlawfully by keeping Hannibal Gaddafi in custody without bringing him to trial since he had not been proven guilty and must not bear the responsibility for somebody else’s crimes.
Libya has been plagued by chaos, instability and Islamic fundamentalist terror groups since longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi was ousted and murdered in 2011 by rebel forces backed by the United Kingdom, France and the United States.
