In the sentence below, what does 'hard-to-get' mean?
The answer suggested by our conversations is that 'country X' does want to work out a modus vivendi with the 'country Y'- but will play hard-to-get.
In fact, I don't undestand correctly this sentence.
Thanks in advance
Similarly, countries may feel they'll get a better deal if they pretend to be less keen than the country that is proposing an agreement.
