His view on the Iberian community of Saramago, who lives since 1991 in voluntary exile in Spain, set out in the Lisbon newspaper Diario de Noticias. "I believe that we will become a single state ... in which Portugal will become another province of Spain. We will keep our language and we write, think and feel on it," - wrote Saramago. He likened such a future of Portugal with the present provinces of Catalonia and Galicia. "In Catalonia has its own culture, but it nonetheless - part of Spain, the same happens with the Basque Country or Galicia. We do not have to become Spaniards," convey "more."
