"India is the chairperson of RIMES (Regional Integrated Multi-hazard Early Warning System for Asia and Africa). We are also a major contributor in terms of resources. So, we are exploring the possibility of having a tsunami early warning system in the South China Sea," Mr Rajeevan said.
He, however, clarified that this project has no official sanction yet.
"If the project materialises then the alerts will be provided through RIMES and will benefit nations like Vietnam and Thailand," Mr Rajeevan said.
