Rice-Based Word for Meeting without Results: LeCondel

If anybody says he wants "leCondel" he means he wants to start meeting without achieving any results, according to New York Times by journalist Steve Erlanger. He reported Israeli government sources have coined the word "meaning, to come and go for meetings that produce few results."

American Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has held several meetings with the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Israel on reaching an agreement on what they can agree to discuss at the planned Annapolis, Maryland conference. Middle East leaders and Secretary Rice have said the Annapolis summit would not be "just another photo opportunity," but Erlanger said expectations are very low for results of the conference, which both American and Israeli leaders now describe as a "meeting."
