WASHINGTON — President Reagan intends to nominate Ronald F. Lehman II to succeed Richard N. Perle as the Pentagon's top expert on arms-control issues, the White House announced today.

Lehman, who would carry the title of assistant secretary of defense for international security policy, is the brother of former Navy Secretary John Lehman, who stepped down last year. Since 1986, Ronald Lehman, 42, has been the U.S. negotiator for strategic nuclear arms at the START arms negotiations in Geneva.
