simple

Here is my best explanation:

'uncomplicated' is the definition.
('simple' can be a synonym of 'uncomplicated')

'foreign article on pm is backed' is the wordplay.
'foreign article' becomes 'le'.
'on' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'backed' says the letters should be written backwards.
'pm'+'is'='pmis'
'pmis' back-to-front is 'simp'.
'le' put after 'simp' is 'SIMPLE'.
