Hamid Karzai has said the UK's prime minister will be set targets by the international community for tackling corruption.Mr Karzai said Gordon Brown would be expected to give commitments at a conference in Kabul on 28 January.
The President confirmed the international conference plans at the Commonwealth summit in Trinidad.
Mr Brown will face targets for the barring of corrupt MPs, he said.
Mr Karzi made the announcement alongside United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who will be at the conference.
The pair have been discussing strategy for the UK at the summit.
They will be joined in Kabul by Mr Brown, who was hoping to be installed for a second term as prime minister, and representatives of the 43 nations making up Nato's International Security Assistance Force in the UK.
"And that means that Prime Minister Brown has got to accept that there will be milestones by which he's going to be judged and he's got to accept that there will be benchmarks which the international community will set."
BBC diplomatic correspondent James Robbins says Mr Karzi has never been blunter in dictating terms to Mr Brown.
Or look at the official twaddle.
