The etc/NEWS file says:

   ** UTF-16 coding systems are available, encoding the same characters
   as mule-utf-8.  Coding system `utf-16-le-dos' is useful as the value
   of `selection-coding-system' in MS Windows, allowing you to paste
   multilingual text from the clipboard.  Set it interactively with
   C-x RET x or in .emacs with `(set-selection-coding-system 'utf-16-le-dos)'.

I have tried using

   (set-selection-coding-system 'utf-16-le-dos)

but I only end up getting an error when I save files.
