He said Gotabaya was not in the list of those who renounced their US citizenship according to a US release. 

 
Minister Ramanayake said he had written three letters to the US embassy inquiring about  Gotabaya’s US citizenship and the reply he got was “We are working on it”.  


He said he would support any candidate fielded by the UNP at the presidential election.
