Blind Chinese lawyer and activist Chen Guangcheng hopes to visit Taiwan in June, a rights group said Friday, as the island's government said a visit could help facilitate understanding with China. 

Chinese activist lawyer Chen Guangcheng leaves after being presented with the Tom Lantos Human Rights Prize during a ceremony at the US Capitol in Washington, DC, on January 29, 2013.

Chen and his family plans to arrive in Taipei on June 23 for a 20-day visit, according to the Taipei-based Taiwan Association for Human Rights, which has organised the trip.
