Hungary's leader urges Hungarian minority to vote in Romania

Hungary's prime minister urged the Hungarian minority in Romania to vote in Sunday's parliamentary election there and "speak up for their own interests."

Prime Minister Viktor Orban spoke Thursday during a visit to western Romania, home to a large Hungarian minority. He said Romania's government wasn't doing everything it could to help the 1.3 million local Hungarians who he said "do not always receive the respect they deserve."
