WASHINGTON, Dec 30 (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Democrats and Republicans need to resolve significant differences to reach a deal to averting the U.S. "fiscal cliff" of looming tax hikes and spending cuts.

"There are still significant differences between the two sides," Reid said on the Senate floor, adding that negotiations were continuing.

"There is still time left to reach an agreement and we intend to continue negotiations," he added.
