We examine the non-Abelian Goldstone boson (chiral field) interaction in two dimensions. As was shown earlier, this theory strongly resembles the Yang-Mills theory in four dimensions. It is shown that dynamics of chiral fields is governed by the infinite number of the non-trivial conservation laws, which impose strong limitations on the S matrix.
