    Washington is preparing to return the Jewish archive to Baghdad in 2018


    A US State Department official said the United States would return the treasures of Iraq's archival archive to Baghdad next year, despite objections from members of the US parliament and Jewish lobby groups. The Jewish lobby calls for keeping the archive in the United States and not returning it to Iraq. 
    The four-year extension of the archive of Iraqi Jews in the United States is due to expire in September 2018, when the United States will provide the cost of maintaining and transferring the contents of the archive. 
    According to statements made by Pablo Rodríguez, spokesman for the State Department, the contents of the archive will be returned to Iraq by the scheduled date.
    "Keeping the archives outside Iraq is possible, but this requires a new agreement between the Iraqi government and any temporary host or government," Rodriguez told JTA news agency. The archive was brought to the United States in 2003 after being rescued by US troops, who found it submerged in the basement of the Iraqi intelligence service, containing tens of thousands of items, including books, religious texts, documents and personal photos. 
    According to an agreement with the Iraqi government, the archive must be returned to Iraq after the restoration and maintenance of the contents of the archive. But in 2014, the Iraqi ambassador to Washington said the archive had been extended but did not specify when it would be returned.
    Congressional members of the Republican and Democratic parties insisted on the need to renegotiate the agreement, arguing that the documents must remain in the United States or anywhere else to be viewed by Iraqi Jews and their descendants. Iraq and supporters of the return of the archives say the archive could be used as an educational tool for Iraqis to learn about the history of Iraq's Jews and that it is also part of the national heritage. The United States has restored and cataloged the archive documents and pages and cataloged them and offered visitors there under the supervision of the National Archives Foundation in Washington. 
    Groups representing Iraqi Jews were strongly opposed to returning the archives on schedule. "
