(MENAFN Press) The eyes of the world were on Geneva last year as, after long and demanding negotiations, pen was put to paper solidifying the first phase agreement between Iran and the P 51. This six-month deal will halt Iran's most sensitive nuclear activities and increase international monitoring of its nuclear program in exchange for some relief from sanctions that have hurt Iran's economy. The question however now is “ what will the political and economic impact of this deal be on states of the GCC and the greater region



Taking a closer look at the issue, The Capital Club, Dubai's premier private business club and member of the ENSHAA group of companies, will be hosting eminent expert Dr Trita Parsi in discussion with Gulf News Editor-at-Large Francis Matthew. Taking place on the 4th of March, this will be an invaluable opportunity for attendees to get their finger on the pulse of what is happening in Iraq and how this agreement will affect the GCC region



Speaking about the event, Emma Cullen, The Capital Club General Manager, said, "The countries of the GCC region are close neighbours and what happens next door invariably ripples through to affect our own interests, both politically and economically. Through this discussion we want to give our Members and their guests the chance to get real insight on how the Iran and P5 1 agreement could impact us and thereby give them access to real actionable information on which to base their future strategy.



An award winning author and the 2010 recipient of the Grawemeyer Award for Ideas Improving World Order, Dr Trita Parsi is the founder and president of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) and an expert on US-Iranian relations, Iranian foreign politics, and the geopolitics of the Middle East. Born in Iran, Parsi relocated with his family to Sweden at the age of four. He moved to the United States as an adult and studied foreign policy at Johns Hopkins' School for Advanced International Studies where he received his Ph.D. Parsi founded NIAC to provide a non-partisan, non-profit organization through which Iranian-Americans could participate in American civic life. NIAC is a vocal proponent of dialogue and engagement between the US and Iran, which Parsi consistently has argued would enhance national security by helping to stabilize the Middle East and bolster the moderates in Iran



Francis Matthew is Editor-at-Large of Gulf News, the Gulf's largest newspaper, where he writes on political and social events in the GCC. Francis has been based in Dubai for the past 17 years in his current position and previously for 10 years as Editor of Gulf News. For eight years between 1987 to 1995, Francis worked in London, Dublin and Brussels, and in the early 1980s he was a journalist in Abu Dhabi, Egypt, Lebanon and Yemen. He speaks Arabic, and has a BA from Exeter University in Arabic and Islamic History
