A Pacific Community conference due to be held in Wallis and Futuna this week has been deferred until an unspecified later date because of the tension emanating from the installation of two rival kings over the weekend.
Public radio reports that the French prefect administering the territory advised the SPC to cancel this week's regional technical workshop on waste management, which was expected to be attended by about 60 people.
Extra police were flown in from New Caledonia last week to provide security.
On Friday, Tominiko Halagahu was made the new king but a rival council of chiefs enthroned Patalione Kanimoa two days later.
The territory is still a awaiting the prefect's announcement of who France recognises as the new king.
The king and the chiefs are part of the administration and on the payroll of the French republic.
