US President Donald Trump (R) gestures as he meets with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un (L) at the start of their historic US-North Korea summit, at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore on June 12, 2018. The document also made no mention of the worldwide sanctions that have crippled North Korea's economy, for pursuing its nuclear weapons program.
Shanmugam is Singapore's Minister for Law and Home Affairs and he is responsible for ensuring security at the summit, the first between a sitting USA president and a North Korean top leader.
Weeks later, more insults followed.
Critics of Trump, however, were quick to point out that the US president had given legitimacy to a murderous regime responsible for the starvation and death of tens of millions of people.
Trump's retort included mention of his own "nuclear button" - one that doesn't actually exist.
US President Donald Trump arrived at the venue just 60 seconds before the summit was to begin.
Professor Hajek added Trump showed his experience in front of the TV cameras during the initial meeting.More news: Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un arrive in Singapore

This trip, like the last one, is sponsored by potcoin.com, the crypto-currency provider for the legal marijuana industry, Rodman said on Twitter.
Trump and Kim met for about 40 minutes Tuesday one-on-one, joined only by interpreters.
Details were not shared about how the discussions have progressed so far and Trump and Kim have yet to meet face-to-face. "If diplomacy does not move in the right direction- and we are hopeful that it will continue to do so- those measures will increase".
"We overcame all kinds of skepticism and speculations about this summit and I believe that this is good for the peace", he said.
"President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", it reads.
Former US basketball star Dennis Rodman wept during an interview in Singapore on Tuesday as he discussed unprecedented talks between the North Korean and US leaders in the city-state aimed at trying to end a nuclear standoff.
Setting out the USA position before the summit, Pompeo stressed that the Trump administration would only accept complete denuclearisation of the North. I asked him, I said I have something to say from North Korea, and he brushed me off.
Rodman's trip was sponsored by PotCoin, a cryptocurrency company that gives marijuana businesses access to banking as an alternative to many financial institutions that will not do business with cannabis companies because marijuana is illegal under USA federal law.
