KUALA LUMPUR - US President Barack Obama has cancelled an official trip to Malaysia next week after the US government went into a shutdown, Malaysian media quoted Prime Minister Najib Razak as saying on Wednesday.

US Secretary of State John Kerry will represent Obama in Malaysia for the visit instead, government-linked newspapers in Malaysia said.The Malaysian Prime Minister's office did not respond to repeated calls seeking confirmation.
