MALAYSIA will ship 5,000 Proton cars to Iraq and is in talks to participate in oil and gas projects, despite growing fears of a US-led war against President Saddam Hussein's regime, said Datuk Seri Rafidah Aziz. 

The International Trade and Industry Minister said yesterday that state oil firm Petronas was negotiating to participate in Ratawi oil field development, Block 2 exploration in the Western Desert and the Iraq-Turkey gas export project.
