TOKYO -- Japanese brewer Kirin Holdings asked on Monday the Singapore International Arbitration Centre to resolve a dispute over ending its business partnership with the Myanmar military, the company said.

Kirin announced on Monday that it had filed for arbitration with the SIAC, hoping involvement by a third-party body would help end the impasse. Kirin is also counting that having its argument heard on the international stage will help its case and add pressure on the military-backed venture partner.
