Malta has announced that it will receive 54 migrants rescued by an Italian charity boat Thursday off the Libyan coast this week after Rome refused to send it to its port, while Valletta noted that it will send to Italy the same number of migrants referred to above already on its territory.

But Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said in a publication on the Twitter blog site, Euro News, on Friday that the Italian boat known as Alex should transport migrants to Tunisia immediately, stated that his country had agreed to receive 54 migrants from Malta as its government announced.

“The situation of 54 migrants including women, children and men on board the boat, which is still off the coast of Lampedusa Island, is rapidly deteriorating,” said the Italian charity, known as Mediterrania, before Malta announced it would send a boat to lift the migrants.“He said.

Italian Deputy Prime Minister Luigi di Maio expressed his displeasure that “NGOs have found a new way to be in the limelight, go to Libyan waters and transport people who could be rescued by the Libyan navy, return to Italy and start to show.”

But charities have denied the charges, saying thousands of people will be killed while trying to cross without their help.
