[Help!] Junction point with Unicode-named directory   [Help!]

I have this F9 batch that I use often:

mklink /J "%j2:%j3\%6" "%2:%3"

and which works fine.

But I stumbled into a strange issue tonight trying to junction link a folder having arabic characters.

جدایی نادر از سیمین (2012) [Une separation] [FR] [IRAN]

which in Ztree displays as:


Trying to junction that directory with my F9 batch ends with this:


a junction point which doesn't work.

I also tried to use Short File Name, but this directory doesn't have one!

Any idea what to do / where to look?

I need to junction point this directory to create a library in Plex multimedia server which contains only selected material taken from other libraries (a "best of" library)
I don't want to rename characters in the original arabic directory as they are required for best Plex recognition and indexing.

Note that I have similar issues with chinese and vietnamese titles such as:

Mùi đu đủ xanh (1993) [L'odeur de la Papaye Verte] [VN] [VIETNAM]
霸王别姬 (1993) [Farewell My Concubine] [Adieu ma concubine] [FR] [CHINA]
