Blind legal activist Chen Guangcheng playing with his daughter Chen Kesi, UPSOUND: Kesi chanting multiplication tables in MandarinSCRIPTCould blind Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng finally get what he wants?The US and China appear to have forged the outline of a deal to end a diplomatic standoff over his fact, and let him travel to America with his family for a university fellowship.Though not without a continuing share of drama, including his telephone call Thursday to a US Congressional hearing, where he asked for some assurances about his freedom and expressed concern about his mother and brothers.But US officials have since spoken to Chen, and met with him at the heavily guarded hospital where he's staying, according to Secretary of State Clinton, who's finishing up a visit to Beijing...SOTthe foreign ministry offered no further details publicly, though. And key obstacles remain, including the question of whether he'd have to return to his home county to apply for a passport. that could expose Chen to retribution from local officials who kept him and his family under brutal house arrest.A positive outcome, however, would not only mean good news for Chen, but also demonstrate that US-China relations have passed a crucial test at a time of growing interdependence.(****END****)VIDEO PRODUCER/VOICER: Karen Sloan------------------------------VIDEO SOURCE: US EMBASSY BEIJING PRESS OFFICE/AP PHOTOS/ CSPAN/ AP TELEVISION/ MOFA/ CHINA AID ASSOCIATION VIA YOUTUBE--------------------------VIDEO APPROVAL: Neal Davies------------------------------VIDEO RESTRICTIONS: No Access Canada----------------------------------WIRE SOURCE: AP------------------------------------
