Why close or partially close meetings?Meetings that include discussions on sensitive, and often classified, topics and materials must be closed.
Recommendation RemarksNo formal reports have been produced for public distribution. Meetings are closed to the public due to the sensitive nature of discussions. Members of the Board have submitted materials for senior State Department officials eyes-only.
