Cannot create post with latin characters in post title

Command to reproduce the bug:
wp post create --post_type=page --post_status=publish --post_title="Perícias Contábeis"
wp post create --post_type=page --post_status=publish --post_title="Atuação"

Actual Results:
Error: Não foi possível inserir o post no banco de dados

If I remove the characters "í", "á", "ç" and "ã" (Portuguese), the post is saved.
wp post create --post_type=page --post_status=publish --post_title="Pericias Contabeis"
Success: Created post 56

Thanks for the report @diegomagikal . Using UTF-8 in PHP arguments doesn't work on Windows for PHP <= 7.0, however it will work for PHP >= 7.1, as it was fixed as part of Support for long and UTF-8 path. A workaround for PHP <= 7.0 is to use the --prompt option:

echo "Perícias Contábeis" | wp post create --post_type=page --post_status=publish --prompt=post_title

This issue should probably be added to
