Thailand will resume diplomatic ties with Cambodia from Tuesday, the Thai government said after the Cambodian government announced former Thai premier Thaksin Shinawatra had resigned as Cambodia's economic advisor.
Thailand and Cambodia recalled their ambassadors from each others' countries on Nov. 5 after Cambodia appointed Thaksin an economic adviser in late October, a move that heightened tension between the neighbours.
"They have announced that they do not have any more ties with Thaksin so our condition to hold back a diplomat has ended," Thai Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya told Reuters.
"Thailand will send our diplomat back tomorrow. Similarly, Cambodia will also send its diplomat back to Thailand."
