Cambodia's embassy in Thailand has reopened after a nine-month diplomatic spat between the two countries. The step to normalize ties came after Thailand's ousted former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra resigned as an adviser to the Cambodian government.
The Cambodian embassy in Bangkok, back in business as full diplomatic ties were restored on Wednesday.
And the Ambassador back in residence after being recalled to Phnom Penh ten months ago..
The diplomatic spat was prompted by Cambodia's appointment of former Thai PM Thaksin Shinawtra as a special economic advisor last year, despite his conviction in Thailand on corruption charges.
When Mr Thaksin resigned that position earlier this week, the ground was cleared for diplomatic links to be resumed.
The ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bangkok also sent its Ambassador back to work.
But he will have a considerable task ahead.
Relations between the two nations have hit a low, and this is just the start of repairing the damage
Thani Thongphakdi, Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said, "We are very pleased to see that Dr Thaksin is no longer engaged as an adviser to the Cambodian Govt, as that was what prompted us to recall our ambassador".
But Mr Thaksin is the least of the problems the Ambassador will have to resolve
An ongoing territorial dispute at this ancient temple has threatened to ignite...
Troops have been building up on both sides of the border, and nationalist rhetoric is pushing both governments into making strong statements about defending their national integrity.
This demonstration in Bangkok several weeks ago, called on the government to expel Cambodians from the temple...even though it is recognized by the International Court of Justice as Cambodian
The Thai government is left with little room to move by pressure groups that regard negotiation as surrender..
It is a popular sentiment which has gathered some momentum.
In a politically divided Thailand, impassioned appeals on Nationalist terms have found a receptive audience.
