Help needed for error in foreign key validation

I have two models bank and country. User should only associate a Bank
a country id present in the country table and I put validates presence
country to enforce it but i get error mysql2::Error: Unknown column
‘countries.bank_id’ in ‘where clause’: SELECT countries.* FROM
countries WHERE countries.bank_id = 17 LIMIT 1 when updating the

Can you tell me how to fix the issue? If I remove the
validates_presence_of :country I get a database error as expected when
update bank table with a country id not in country table.

class Bank < ActiveRecord::Base

attr_accessible :name,:country_id

has_one :country

validates :name, :presence => true

validates_presence_of :country


class Country < ActiveRecord::Base

attr_accessible :name
