French right-wing National Front presidential candidate Marine Le Pen canceled a meeting on Tuesday with Lebanon's grand mufti, after refusing to wear a headscarf for the meeting.

Marine Le Pen is on a three day visit to Lebanon, and Tuesday she had planned to meet the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdel-Latif Derian.

However, the meeting was canceled shortly after Le Pen arrived at the Grand Mufti's office.

According to the news agency AP, one of the staff tried to force Le Pen to put on a headscarf.

But thankfully Le Pen is not a submissive Swedish politician, so that didn't go as the Mufti had planned.

- You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not cover myself up, Le Pen told reporters afterwards, according to Reuters.

The right-wing party leader also said that she previously met Egypt's Grand Mufti, and that she did not had to use a headscarf.

The Press Office of the Lebanese Grand Mufti, however, stated that they had notified in advance that Le Pen had to use the veil during the meeting.
