track two diplomacy
 n.— «All this was what is sometimes called “Track Two” diplomacy, i.e., quiet sessions out of the headlines. Whatever its results, it is a lot better than future headlines of nuclear catastrophe.» —“Sleepwalking Towards a Nuclear Catastrophe” Embassy (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) Oct. 4, 2006.
