Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 10 /Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/
Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said today that Western states want to bring drought to Iran, by preventing clowds from making heavy rains, ISNA reported.
Ahmadinejad made a speech at the city of Gonbad-e Qabus, where he underscored that "it is a war, that Iran will eventually overcome".
Iran has experienced several droughts in recent years, especially in the south where it gets hit by violent sand storms that engulfed several cities.
Sand storms particularly enter Iran from neighbouring Iraq where desertification has increased over the last two decades due to wars.
Last year Ahmadinejad noted that some European countries have been using special equipment to break clowds apart to prevent rains from coming to Iran, and there is a proof of that.
He added that this matter should be handled by legal authorities, so such behavior does not continue any further.
