Abstract: The Yang-Baxter σ -model is an integrable deformation of the principal chiral model on a Lie group G . The deformation breaks the G × G symmetry to U(1) rank( G ) × G . It is known that there exist non-local conserved charges which, together with the unbroken U(1) rank( G ) local charges, form a Poisson algebra , which is the semiclassical limit of the quantum group U q g $$ {U}_q\left(\mathfrak{g}\right) $$ , with g $$ \mathfrak{g} $$ the Lie algebra of G . For a general Lie group G with rank( G ) > 1, we extend the previous result by constructing local and non-local conserved charges satisfying all the defining relations of the infinite-dimensional Poisson algebra , the classical analogue of the quantum loop algebra U q L g $$ {U}_q\left(L\mathfrak{g}\right) $$ , where L g $$ L\mathfrak{g} $$ is the loop algebra of g $$ \mathfrak{g} $$ . Quite unexpectedly, these defining relations are proved without encountering any ambiguity related to the non-ultralocality of this integrable σ -model.
