China's Foreign Ministry said on Monday that the Chinese government could not confirm that objects spotted by a Chinese military aircraft earlier in the day were connected with the missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner.

The comments were made by ministry spokesman Hong Lei at a daily news briefing.

Hong also said Chinese ships are expected to start arriving on Tuesday in the search area of the southern Indian Ocean.
