Egypt's National Association for change condemned on Wednesday the "outright intervention of the United States in Egypt's internal affairs" which was expressed in the U.S. State Department call to the opposition to participate in the parliamentary elections.

Spokesperson of the U.S. State Department, Edgar Vasquez, has urged all the Political Parties to participate in the upcoming elections, saying, "Elections give the Egyptians a chance to have their voices heard."

"It is crucial for all Egyptian parties to be involved," said Vasquez, as reported by the American Network, Fox News.

In response to Vasquez's remarks, the National Association for Change issued a statement saying, "Neither America, nor any other country, has the right to provide advice to Egyptians, or interfere in any way in the internal affairs of Egypt."

"The successive governments of the United States have supported Hosni Mubarak's regime unconditionally, which sponsored corruption and tyranny. They continue to disgracefully support the Muslim Brotherhood's repressive regime," said the statement.

The statement added that according to U.S. reports, Barack Obama's administration has provided financial aid of one billion and a half dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood to enable it to take over the revolution and the government. 

The Association also declared that the planned visit of the U.S. Secretary of State is unwelcomed; inviting all youth and political forces to stage mass protests rejecting the visit and denouncing the U.S intervention.

"Egypt is not a Banana republic, if the U.S. continues its bias towards tyrants at the expense of the right of the Egyptian people to independence, freedom and dignity, it should be wary of the wrath of Egyptians," warned the National Association for Change.
