U.S. President Joe Biden has canceled a historic visit to Papua New Guinea, where he was to meet with Pacific Island leaders, choosing instead to focus on crucial debt-ceiling negotiations in Washington. Biden's meeting with the leaders of India, Australia and Japan in Sydney has also been scrapped.
