    Hi
    I was wondering if there's someone who can help me translate - or explain the meaning of the following (very famous) phrase:
    Said by mexican president Benito Juárez as a reply to the Monroe Doctrine/panamericanim:
    "El respeto al derecho ajeno es la paz"
    If you can explain to me what he meant it will be very helpful to me
    Best regards Mette
