An oil well is seen near DenverBy Christopher Johnson LONDON (Reuters) - Brent crude oil fell almost 2 percent toward $61 a barrel on Monday after Iran said a deal on its nuclear program could be agreed this week if the West lifted sanctions, which could boost the country's oil exports. Oil prices were also depressed by a stronger dollar and reports of a rise in Libyan crude output, traders said. Brent crude hit a low of $61.18 a barrel and was at $61.30 by 7.20 a.m. ET, down $1.28. "If there is the political will to accept that an agreement and sanctions cannot go together, then we can have an agreement this time," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in Geneva.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry accused the U.N. Human Rights Council on Monday of being obsessed by allegations of Israeli abuses and said the United States would defend Israel against efforts to isolate it. In a speech to the Council in Geneva, Kerry also exhorted the 47-member-state group to look into what he described as severe abuses in separatist-controlled areas of eastern Ukraine as well as in Crimea, annexed by Russia from Ukraine last year. For decades the government has subjugated its citizens, starving and torturing and incarcerating them or worse." Kerry offered a strong defense of Israel against what he called the council's unbalanced focus on the country. "It must be said that the HRC’s obsession with Israel actually risks undermining the credibility of the entire organization," Kerry said.
