The premier was in Phnom Penh yesterday to attend the royal cremation ceremony of Cambodia's former king Norodom Sihanouk.
Ms Yingluck told Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen that her government appreciated the decision to grant a royal pardon to Thai Patriots Network activist Ratree Pipatanapaiboon and cut the sentence of network leader Veera Somkwamkid by six months.
Veera and Ms Ratree were sentenced to eight and six years in jail respectively for illegal entry, espionage and entering a restricted military zone without permission on Dec 29, 2010.
Ms Ratree returned to Thailand on Friday after serving more than two years of her sentence in Phnom Penh's Prey Sar prison.
Ms Yingluck said Thailand wanted to cooperate with Cambodia to develop border areas and promote prosperity and peace between the neighbouring countries.
She was later granted an audience with Queen Norodom Monineath and her son King Norodom Sihamoni at Khemarin Palace in the Cambodian capital.
