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 Uq(g)Uq(g) , with gg 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 Uq(Lg)Uq(Lg) , where LgLg is the loop algebra of gg . Quite unexpectedly, these defining relations are proved without encountering any ambiguity related to the non-ultralocality of this integrable σ-model.
