According to a statement by the Libyan prime minister's information office on Friday, the two leaders also discussed the latest political developments in Libya, bilateral relations, and cooperation between the two countries, Xinhua reported.
The Libyan Prime Minister stressed the distinguished relations between the two countries, praising Italy's support for Libya to overcome its current crisis, it said.
Upon his appointment as interior minister in early June, Salvini said his country would be a "refugee camp," in reference to Rome's refusal to continue receiving migrants.
Italy closed its ports earlier in June and refused to receive a ship belonging to an international organisation that rescues migrants in the Mediterranean, with 600 migrants aboard.
Spain agreed to receive the 600 migrants, after intensive international contacts.
Italy's refusal to receive these migrants from Libya is the first of its kind, which observers consider an indication of Italy's beginning of giving up its international commitments on migrants.
