Portugal is destined to join Spain, says José Saramago

"Don't look on me as a prophet, but I am convinced that Portugal will end up as part of Spain", confides Portugese writer José Saramago, winner of the Nobel Prize for litterature in 1988, during an interview conducted by João Céu e Silva. "Catalonia has its own culture, which like the rest of Spain, follows the example of what happens to the Basques or in Galicia; We will not become Spanish. When we look at the Iberian peninsula, what do we see? We see a whole that is not composed of little pieces, but which is instead made up of nationalities, and in some cases, different languages, who live more or less in peace. If we were integrated, what would happen? We wouldn't stop speaking Portugese, nor stop writing in our language, and with ten million people, we would certainly have everything to gain from the territorial, administrative and structural connections."
