This is just a guess, but is it because the lead riders had gone over the 2/3rd distance? Results were taken from lap 15 but leaders were on lap 17 when it stopped.

It didn't restart because they were on a time limit due to the other races to be ran and there wasn't enough time to finish that race then run the moto2 and gp

According to article 1.25.4 of the regulations:
"If the results calculated show that two-thirds of the original race distance rounded down to the nearest whole number of laps have been completed by the leader of the race and by all other riders on the same lap as the leader, then:
- For the Moto3 and Moto2 classes, the race will be deemed to have been completed and full Championship points will be awarded."

2 thirds of 23 are 15,333333... but this is rounded down to 15 so the distance needed was reached.
