YANGON -- Aung Naing Oo, Myanmar's investment and foreign economic relations minister, says a dispute between Japanese brewer Kirin Holdings and a company backed by the Myanmar military will be settled based on the law.

Everything will "go along with the laws," and the government is monitoring the progress of the issue between the two parties, the minister told Nikkei and other media outlets in an online news conference on Tuesday. Maung Maung Ohn, Myanmar's information minister, also took part in the interview. Both ministers were appointed by the military after it seized power from the civilian-led government in February.
