Instead, Ahmadinejad has accused his country's "enemies" of dissipating rainclouds before they arrive in the Islamic republic.
"The enemy destroys the clouds that are headed toward our country and this is a war Iran will win," Ahmadinejad said, according to a Reuters report that cites BBC Persian and Iranian website Snn.ir.
Ahmadinejad apparently made the same argument during a dry spell last year, when he accused the West of plotting to cause drought in Iran.
Back in April 2010, RFE/RL reported that Ahmadinejad prayed for rain in Orumyeh in Iran’s Western Azerbaijan Province.
As soon as he finished his speech, raindrops began falling -- at least according to the hard-line Fars news agency.
