JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KMOX)__Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s business trip to Taiwan and South Korea is off. 

The governor’s office says the trip has been cancelled due to travel challenges.  It’s not known if it will be rescheduled.

Also planning to go on the trip were several state department directors and business and agricultural leaders.

On Friday the U-S and South Korea agreed to the largest trade pact in more than a decade, but there have been tensions in the region since North Korea shelled a South Korean island last month.
