ATHENS (Reuters) - A senior official of Greece's ruling Syriza party called on Wednesday for his party to unite behind a new bailout agreement with international lenders and to put the country first.

Nikos Filis, Syriza's parliamentary spokesman, also said that Greece did not want a bridge loan to help it pay debts but was seeking full agreement so that it could receive a first tranche of 25 billion euros from a new agreement.
