Iranian lawmaker Alaeddin Boroujerdi on Saturday accused German company Siemens of sabotaging its nuclear program, Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA) reported.

According to the news agency, citing Boroujerdi, Iranian security experts discovered small explosives embedded in equipment Tehran bought from Siemens for its nuclear program. DPA quoted Borojerdi as claiming, "the equipment was supposed to blow up after installation in order to destroy our [nuclear] systems."



Siemens immediately dismissed the allegations, with DPA quoting company spokesman Alexander Machowetz as saying, "we have no business dealings related to the Iranian nuclear program."

The United Nations has banned the sale of nuclear-related equipment to Iran.
