ANKARA, Dec 6 (Reuters) - NATO allies did not reach agreement at a summit in London this week and Ankara was left alone in the fight against terrorism, Defence Minister Hulusi Akar was quoted as saying on Friday.

Turkey had threatened to block a NATO agreement for the defence of Poland and the Baltic states unless the alliance agreed to designate Syrian Kurdish fighters Ankara targeted in an October military offensive as terrorists. Turkey eventually agreed to back the Baltic plan.
