Top Lebanese leaders agreed Monday on a unified position against Israeli attempts to encroach on land and maritime borders ahead of U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's visit to Beirut later this week, even as Israel refused to budge on the building of a wall on a disputed territory along the Lebanese-Israeli frontier.The Baabda meeting between the three leaders came as the U.N. peacekeeping force in south Lebanon, UNIFIL, headed a tripartite meeting at its headquarters in the border town of Naqoura between senior Lebanese Army, Israeli and U.N. officers to discuss the wall as well as Israel's threats against Lebanon over its right to explore and exploit oil and gas wealth in its territorial waters.Referring to the developments in the southern border region, Berri said: "Any measure taken by Israel will have grave consequences". He also warned of a possible "security flare-up" over Israel's threats against Lebanon, but said that the Lebanese Army has been fully instructed to repel any Israeli attack.
