US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen canceled a visit to the port of Yokohama out of respect for Japan’s mourning following the assassination of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

That includes a planned speech at the port by Yellen, who is beginning an Asian trip in Japan on Sunday, according to Treasury spokeswoman Elizabeth Bourgeois. A meeting with Japanese Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki remains on the schedule for Tuesday.
