In this paper I have attempted to explain the diplomatic activities of Jo Dong-Ho, the representative of the Korean Communist Party, sent to Moscow to seek entry into the Comintern. For his efforts the March Decision was adopted by the 6th Plenum of the Executive Committee of Comintern. The Decision provided for the Korean Communist Party to became an official member of the Communist International. Mr.Jo was in stiff competition with the delegates, sent to Moscow by the allied non-mainstreamer communist groups. He won competition against the opposite delegate with the help of the Comintern bureaucrats headed by Voitinsky. According to the earlier studies, the decisions of Comintern on Korean Problem had been to be decided unilaterally. But as things have turned out Korean delegates participated in the decision-making process of Comintern. Jo Dong-Ho set up a cooperative system with Voitinsky group, on the oter hand, the opposite delegate entered into the partnership with Kuusinen group. The March Decision was reached after a last minute compromise between the Jo-Voitinsky group and the opposite-Kuusinen group.
