PHP ZipArchive dont support UTF8 files for open

my problem is OPEN files with UTF8 name. ZipArchive dont open files with UTF8 character. i dont add new file i need only open file.

Test script:
$path = "files/تست تست.zip";
$zip = new \ZipArchive();
if($zip->open($path) === true) {
   return "File opened";
   return "File could not be opened";

@ab already talked about this in your other bug report:
> Thanks for the report. For the Windows part - these issues are fixed in PHP 7.1,
