Imbroglio continues!'

The Indian Government called off the secretary-level talks with Pakistan and that had the newspapers' headlines screaming - 'Imbroglio continues!'
Imbroglio is our word of the week. 
Imbroglio is an expression used to describe a perplexing or an intricate state of affairs that is often more complicated than it appears on the surface. The word also refers to a misunderstanding or a disagreement of a bitter or complicated nature between two entities (now, these could be people, political parties, groups or even nations).
