He said that he is ready to take this step because he is “devoted to the United Kingdom more than to the country in which he was born.”
Johnson said he did not choose an American citizenship. He got it because he was born in New York City. “I must find a way to solve this issue,” – said the Mayor of London.
According to the Mayor, he will inform the US ambassador to the United Kingdom Matthew Barzan of his intentions. “The renunciation of citizenship will be a quite time-consuming process. It’s a difficult thing in America, “- he was quoted by BBC News.
In late January, Johnson agreed to pay the US government a capital gains tax on the sale his real estate, which will be about 100 thousand pounds. Earlier, the British politician called the US demands “outrageous”.
