The Anti-Comintern Pact, officially the Agreement against the Communist International was an agreement between Germany, Italy, and Japan to work together to prevent communism from spreading over the world.

The USSR was the target of this. It was signed by Joachim von Ribbentrop, Germany’s top diplomat, and Kintomo Mushanokji, Japan’s ambassador to Germany. Italy became a member in 1937, but the rules of her admission made her a legitimate original signatory. In 1939, Spain and Hungary became members of the European Community. During World War II, more countries joined.
