Why must cells that contain chloroplast also contain mitochondria?

I think its because chloroplast's main function is photosynthesis for which carbon dioxide is essential which is got from mitochondria which is a seat of aerobic cellular respiration(i.e oxygen is taken in and CARBON DIOXIDE IS LIBERATED).Thus cells that contain chloroplast also contain mitochondria. Hope this helps..... :)
