Thailand reopened a

national park Tuesday that has been closed since tensions broke out

in Si Sa Ket and borders Cambodia's Preah Vihear province, will now

state at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the opening of the

national park would not have an effect on the decision to open the

currently closed Preah Vihear border gate between the two countries.
