So, You're Saying: with the forced line 64. Be7 Ne7; 65.Be5 Ne7; 66. Bxc4 Kg7;
and finally with this position after 66.. ...[text shortened]...

Yes. White's plan is to use the bishops and king to restrain the knight and force the king to a corner until one of these three situations arises:
1- the knight is forced away from the king (and then lost)
2- the knight is pinned and won by the king and bishop
If the black king was in the center, that could take more than 50 moves, which is a draw. But in the diagram position, with the black jpking near the corner and the white king in such an active position, I think white can settle the deal in 20 moves or less. I'd show some variations, but I don't know how to set up a PGN from a FEN.
