    Engage

    I am not sure about the meaning of "engage" here:

    ( nytimes.com/2013/07/02/world/europe/snowden-applies-for-asylum-in-russia.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0 )
    "While Mr. Snowden remains in this suspended state, the United States has engaged an array of countries that have considered granting him asylum, making clear that doing so would carry big costs. "

    Does "engage" mean "hire"?

    Does "engage" mean "hire"?

    No, in this case it means to contact and communicate with.
