During UIAA General Assembly held in Switzerland from 3- 5 Oct, Pakistan Alpine Club and Indian Mountaineering Foundation requested to give them some time to discuss in their general assembly and get approval to proceed for international recognition of additional five mountains above 8000m. UIAA initiated the Agura project to identify and recognize new peaks above 8,000 metres. It identified five additional peaks in Nepal and one at the China-Pakistan border as new peaks above 8,000 metres. The six peaks are Yarlung Khang - 8,505m (also known as Kanchenjunga West), Kanchenjunga Central - 8,473m (Nepal-India border), Kanchenjunga South - 8,476m (Nepal-India border), Lhotse Middle - 8,413m (Nepal-China border), Lhotse Shar - 8,400m (Nepal-China border) and Broad Peak Central - 8,047m (Pakistan-China border).
