BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanese leaders agreed on Tuesday to act regionally and internationally to prevent Israel from building a border wall, and infringing on an energy block in disputed waters between the two countries.

Lebanese President Michel Aoun, Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, and Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri discussed "the Israeli threats, and saw in them ... a direct threat to the stability" of the border region, a statement said.
