Not really. It misses a lot of characters.

Might I recommend using BabelMap
(http://www.babelstone.co.uk/Software/BabelMap.html) so you can investigate
your fonts?

The only font I am aware of that supports a lot of Unicode fonts is James
Kass' Code 200x fonts (http://www.code2000.net/).

In almost all cases you will need to gather a collection of fonts in order
to typeset your documents as it is hard to find font designers who know
enough about all languages to properly design the fonts. Not to mention such
fonts would quickly grow unwieldy.
