He provided an unidentified Iranian organization with equipment worth 436,000 euros ($584,000) in 10 deliveries from 2011 to 2013.

Prosecutors office in Karlsruhe allege the suspect, in custody since February, delivered the items via a company in an unidentified "neighboring Arab country" of Iran to avoid embargo restrictions.

The suspect was convicted in 2009 by a court in Bonn for attempted dealings with the same Iranian organization, they said.

Hassan Rouhanim the president of the clerical regime in iran told the visiting head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog on Sunday that Tehran will not discuss its long-range missile program as part of talks aimed at resolving a decade-long nuclear dispute, official media reported.
