Default Anthropological question on Emiratis with recent Iranian origins

A % of Emiratis can trace their ancestry to the Iranian province of Sistan & Baluchistan and the neighbouring coastal Iranian regions.

I have read on amateur Anthro forums that most of these people were ethnic Arabs who settled these Iranian coastal provinces in ages gone by. So are most Baluch Emiratis ethnic Arabs or Iranic?

Isn't Iranian a nationality not an ethnicity. Most Iranians are Persian, others are Arab and a whole host of other ethnicities. Aren't almost everyone in Khuzestan Arab?

Iranic = those Indo-Iranian ethnic groups that settled the Iranian plateau and immidiately adjoing areas.

Hence the surname or used word - Balushi?

Speaking of Balushi, where is he these days, I met him a number of times.
