No kazakh say қазақстан in therir language.It is translated as qazaqstan. No k because k is only applicable to front vowels .Q is back vowels.Source(s): Kazakhs are the true brothers of krygyz

Apparently, Kazakhstan is closer to the Kazakh pronunciation. Kazakistan seems to have come through another language into European languages (I saw it as the header on the Turkish and Italian Wikipedia), just like what happened with Farsi/Persian.
