Budapest, February 29 (MTI) – Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and Romania’s ethnic Hungarian RMDSZ party leader Hunor Kelemen discussed topical issues of the Hungarian minority in Budapest on Monday.

Orbán and Kelemen agreed on the need for Transylvanian Hungarians to gain strength during political clashes accompanying the run-up to this year’s elections, a trend which should be reflected by the number of municipal and parliamentary seats won, Bertalan Havasi, the prime minister’s press chief, told MTI.

Kelemen presented draft development plans aimed to help Transylvanian Hungarians retain their identity and foster their culture, he said.

Orbán expressed support for the plans, including establishing a boarding school for diaspora students in Timisoara (Temesvár), founding an ice hockey academy in Szeklerland and enriching the collection of the Transylvanian Arts Centre in Sfantu Gheorghe (Sepsiszentgyörgy).
