The People’s Republic of China (China) is taking serious steps in accordance with its global development strategy of the One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative. This geopolitical and geo‐economic megaproject meets the positive and the negative connotation on the road that passes through over 60 countries of different civilizations, religious, cultural, economic, political and other values and orientation. Only a superficial analysis of the security aspects megaproject points to numerous difficulties and obstacles that must be neutralized in order to realize the common economic interests of all participants along the way. Security analysis of the OBOR initiative has been implemented through a description of the basic factors that determine the security aspect of this megaproject. Only the security situation of the countries along the way, their grouping in the security and defence alliances, crisis points and intertwining interests of the major actors in the international arena provide a clear factual picture that leads to the understanding of security difficulties along the way.
