    behind closed doors

    Dear teachers,


    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?


    "Civil groups and non-government organizations have a right to take part in discussions at the United Nations," he said. "In other bodies, such as the G-20, this is not the case. It's an exclusive club of governments that meets behind closed doors."


    behind closed doors = in secret, privately


    Thank you for your efforts.


    Regards,


    V
