Equating countries and languages is wrought with danger...

Currently: Hausa, Kashmiri, Kurdish (written in Latin, Cyrillic, and Arabic), Sindhi.

In recent history: Kazak, Kyrghyz, Turkish, Uighur.

Until early Middle Ages: Aragonese, Maltese.

(Source: www.omniglot.com, and Aragonese and Maltese from my faulty memory...)
