S President Barack Obama has cancelled his trip to Asia because of the US government shutdown.
Mr Obama will miss two summits, including the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation (Apec) meeting in Indonesia.
The decision was made due to the “difficulty in moving forward with foreign travel in the face of a shutdown”, the White House said.
The US government closed non-essential operations after the two houses of Congress failed to agree a new budget.
