Where diplomats are keeping to themselves... A circle is a group of people sharing an interest, activity, or achievement.

As in:

business circles
financial circles
commercial circles
society circles

Not quite so restrictive as "keeping to themselves" - it is usually used to mean that something occurs in the world of diplomacy.

It does help to have your source sentence for a phrase like this which can have several interpretations
