ImageTEHRAN (AFP) — A top provincial cleric has urged Iran's energy minister to publicly pray for rain as the country suffers from a serious drought, the student ISNA news agency reported on Tuesday.

"I've been asked several times to lead the prayers for rain," said Ayatollah Gholam Ali Naim Abadi, the Friday prayer leader in Iran's southern coastal port of Bandar Abbas.

"But I think the energy minister (Parviz Fattah) should make the prayers himself," he said.

"We pray for rain in most of the desert regions but only little in a coastal province where the problems of water can be solved with desalination installations."

"We have the technology and we can use it," he added.

Lack of rain and an irregular winter snowfall mean that Iran is facing a drought ahead of its hot summer, like many other countries in the region.
