    Saudi Arabia and other global powers are expecting Tehran to change their policy to be a respectable member of the global community, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Saudi foreign minister urged Tehran to reject "its dangerous sectarian and expansionist policies."

    "The world is watching Iran for signs of change, hoping it will evolve from a rogue revolutionary state into a respectable member of the international community," Jubeir wrote in The New York Times newspaper.

    On January 2, demonstrators in Iran, protesting the execution of prominent Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr by Riyadh, attacked the Saudi Embassy in Tehran and the consulate in Mashhad. Following the incident, Saudi Arabia announced the cutting of diplomatic ties and air links with Iran.
