TEHRAN, Nov 12 (Reuters) - Iran is close to sealing a deal with the EU under which Tehran would freeze sensitive nuclear work in return for avoiding referral to the UN Security Council for possible sanctions, a top Iranian official said on Friday.

"Fortunately the negotiations are going forward step by step, yet they are still a couple of steps away from what we want," former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, who remains an influential official in the Islamic state, told Friday Prayer worshippers in Tehran.

"If the Europeans are fair, I think the door is open for a solution and we can reach an agreement," he added in comments broadcast live on state radio."
