How to Remove duplicate from Table

I have a table called Country and it has following data

 

CountryKeyCountry Name
1Australia
1Aus
2United States
2USA
3Canada
3Can

 

 

and want convert data like:

CountryKeyCountry Name
1Australia
2United States
3Canada

 

Which function should you use in the query for Country Table: 

 

Table.RemoveMatchingRows
Table.Distinct     [Is this right]
Table.InDistinct
Table.ReplaceMatchingRows

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/powerquery-m/table-distinct
I tried: Edit Queries-->Select your table-->Select Column-->Right Click-->Remove Duplicates--> then go to Advance Editor--> and found that #"Removed Duplicates" = Table.Distinct(#"Changed Type", {"CountryKey"})
