Text: “COP26: Minister in wheelchair unable to attend summit.” BBC.com
Extract: “An Israeli minister has said she could not attend the COP26 summit on Monday because it was not wheelchair accessible.
Karine Elharrar tweeted that it was “sad” the UN “does not provide accessibility to its events”.
An official in Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s delegation said they had formally complained to organisers.
Mr Bennett said he would not attend on Tuesday if Ms Elharrar could not access the summit, the official added.” https://www.bbc.com/news/world-59128618
A UN summit is a place that most people would assume is fully wheelchair accessible. There are likely UN and local guidelines about accessibility that have to be “interpreted.” The media response in the form of news article (and the response of the readers) are also subject to interpretation.
