WASHINGTON, April 19. /TASS/. A buildup of mutual trust in the sphere of international information security is to be one of the objectives of a meeting of high-rank Russian and American experts that has been scheduled for April 21-22 and will take place in Geneva, well-informed diplomatic sources in Washington told TASS on Monday.

The information available at the moment indicates that the Russian delegation will be led by Sergei Buravlyov, a Deputy Secretary of Russia's Security Council and the American delegation, by the special aide to the US President and the White House coordinator by cyber security, Michael Daniel.

A high-rank official at the U.S. Administration, who confirmed to TASS the meeting would be held, said resumption of activity of a workgroup on cyber security appended with the Bilateral Presidential Commission was off the agenda but a discussion of cyber security problems with Russia, including a buildup of mutual trust met the US interests anyway.

The source said that US experts held meetings with their Russian counterparts periodically for discussing the key problems of state security including struggle with international terrorism.

The same sources told TASS the forthcoming meeting would focus exactly on international aspects of information security, including the ones related to the UN and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), rather than on some specific episodes of struggle with cyber crime, like the detentions of hackers who inflict commercial damage.

As for the activities of the Russian-American commission for cooperation, its activities were frozen in 2014 by Washington in the wake of contradictions with Russia over the situation in Ukraine.
