Hi Pal,

I think that you may search in this forum to have lots of answers. However by confirming a bank undertakes to effect the action foreseen in the l/c. So this bank must book the risk towards the
issuing bank. If not confirmed the advising bank is not obliged to perform such action and may opt to do or not to do.
