Kazakhstan's president has suggested changing the country's name, by removing the "stan" at the end.

President Nursultan Nazarbayev has put forward Kazak Eli - or Kazakh Nation - as a possible alternative.

Government policy advisor, Prof Simon Anholt, told BBC News it would be a change that would have a global impact.
