MANILA, Philippines — China has rejected a proposal for a third party investigator for the Recto (Reed) Bank incident and has insisted that the probe be conducted only by Philippine and Chinese authorities, Malacañang said yesterday. Presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said Chinese officials had told Philippine Ambassador to Beijing Chito Sta. Romana that there is no need for a third party since the two countries can settle the issue between themselves: “Ang sabi naman nila, huwag na iyong third party.
