The Italian Coast Guard boat U. Diciotti docked in Catania on Wednesday, carrying 932 migrants and two dead bodies.
A total of seven different rescue operations were carried out in Libyan waters.
The rescue mission comes mere days after the migrant rescue ship Aquarius rescued 629 people in two different operations with help from the Italian coastguard.
They were due to dock in Sicily, but Salvini responded by closing Italian ports and said Malta should take the boat.
Spain has since offered ‘safe harbor’ to the migrant rescue ship.
